John 20

King James Version (KJV)

20 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre.

Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.

Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre.

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.

And he stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying; yet went he not in.

Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie,

And the napkin, that was about his head, not…

OUR CABINS!

Our Cabins

When my wife and I go for drives in the country, we are delighted

when we see a lovely log cabin. The view of these lovely cabins

takes me back in my thoughts to the pioneer days. The pioneers

traveled far, traveled slow and worked hard. Their cabins were not

fancy or brightly painted, there was no landscaping done, no lawns

to mow; that might have been a good thing. They built their cabins

by the sweat of their brow. These cabins were not much by our

standards today but to them it was their castle; it was their life

or death in the harsh winter. Yes, they were hard working people,

people with high moral standards, standards which this country

was built on. We, as a nation need to return to and use these

moral standards today; let God fill our cabins with His love and

build our country on that. Let us put our faith in Jesus and He will

build us a home in Heaven, not a simple cabin but a mansion.

We read in 2 Cor.5:1 ” For we know that if our earthly house of

this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house

not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”

Great moments!

When I was a lad,

O, what a great time I had,

Even when I walked ,

miles to Sunday School,

With my mom and dad.

God blessed me,

With two great brothers,

They are always welcome,

And so great to see.

Yes, we are believers,

In the gospel,

That if one calls upon,

The precious name of Jesus,

They will have a home,

A home in Heaven,

Because from sin,

They have been set free.

REFLECTIONS!

letter_writing

I remember back,

Back when I was seventeen,

I loved to run,

Run to keep in shape.

I ran back from my friends,

And being a new believer,

I would sing as I ran,

“O, How great thou art”.

I would sing,

About being set free,

And how much,

God’s word meant to me.

Yes, His words read on page,

Or sang in hymns,

Still are strength,

And great comfort for me!

LIFE IS A BOOK

Life is like a school book,

Filled with lessons,

We can learn everyday,

And as we turn each page,

Life’s lessons are learned,

As we read the words,

That are written by a sage.

We moved forward

As we had a desire,

To learn more,

Some days slow,

And some days fast.

We would learn lessons,

That would help in life.

Yes, life is like a school book,

It’s last page comes to fast!

Our life comes from God,

Created by HIS HANDS,

And He gave us a book,

To teach and guide us,

As we travel this sod.

And if we live our lives

And believe the good news,

And follow God’s Son;

He gives eternal life,

Freedom over death ,

And the devil,

The victory won.

CHRIST OUR MEDIATOR

Wint68's Blog

We are living in a world of unrest and disputes, many of which, has to be settled using a mediator, one who has the  interest of both parties and seeks to help settle the dispute. The same is true in our relationship with God. Satan is always bringing accusations about us before God but we have Christ, who intercedes on our behalf. Here are a few Scriptures about Christ our Mediator.

Eph.2: 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Christ Our Peace

14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and…
